Porsche lineup needs another 911 coupe versionMay 20, 2020
As the 911 sports coupe gets harder with each new generation, and its design gets complicated every time, one of the creators of this iconic car wants to develop a simpler version of the car.
The main sports cars in the Porsche lineup are: Boxster, Cayman and, of course, 911. Obviously, 911 is the flagship model among them with an initial price of $ 99,200, while the Boxster has a starting price tag of $ 59,600, and Cayman – 57 500 dollars. But one of the Porsche executives thinks – or rather, wants – that customers can buy another, simpler version of 911.
Frank-Steffen Wallizer, who takes part in the creation of 911 and 718 models around the world, spoke last week with Australian media about the debut of the new 911 Targa. There he talked about his “desire” to introduce a simpler version of the 911 coupe of the current generation 992.
Wallizer said, “This is just my wish,” so don’t expect the less powerful 911 to appear anytime soon. Wallizer also said: “Perhaps I would have made the new product a little more sporty than the 992 as a whole, although I have no complaints about the current version of the model.”
The possibility of a smaller, lighter and more sporty Porsche 911 sounds good, but the company’s management is unlikely to do so now. The next in line version of the sports 911 is expected to be a hybrid model that, according to Porsche CEO Oliver Blum, will be “very powerful.” This Porsche could have a capacity of over 640 horsepower and 800 Nm of torque. But Blum also notes in the same interview that he “will fight to keep 911 its gas engine,” so the all-electric 911 “is still not needed by the company.”
Not so long ago, our publication wrote about the presentation of the Porsche 911 Targa 4 and Targa 4S. Porsche Corporation on Monday, May 18, showed off the 911 Targa 4 and 911 Targa 4S.
